EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State Police are investigating after a woman reported that she was assaulted by East Lansing serial killer Don Miller.

State police received the report back in February.

“If in fact, it’s a legit claim and police can prove it, then I would it say it’s encouraging,” said author Rod Sadler, a former police officer who has written a book about Miller, "Killing Women."

Miller,66, has been behind bars since the late 1970s, after admitting to killing 4 women, including his fiancé.

State police are releasing very few details of what the woman said happened to her, but the case could make a big difference for Miller, who is being considered for parole for the ninth time.

I think that people can be rehabilitated in prison, certain types of people,” Sadler said. “I just don’t think a sexual psychopath, serial killer can be rehabilitated in prison. That’s my own opinion.”

Sadler has been following Miller’s case since it unfolded, he even wrote a book about it called Killing Women. Sadler has been vocal about his belief that Miller should stay behind bars.

“Back then, people were saying he got 30 to 40 years, we won’t have to worry about Don Miller again, well here in 2021 and we’re worried about Don Miller,” Sadler said.

On Monday, Miller was interviewed by the state’s parole board, which will decide on his early release within 30 days. If Miller does not receive parole, he is expected to be released in 2031 when he is 75.
